We define ''convergence'' for noncommutative power series and construct two topologies on the algebra of power series, convergent with respect to a positive radius. We indicate all finite dimensional continuous representations of this algebra and prove completeness for both topologies. Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0701048v1

This is an addendum to the paper ``Deformation of $L_\infty$-Algebras'' of the same author. We explain in which way the deformation theory of $L_\infty$-algebras extends the deformation theory of singularities. We show that the construction of semi-universal deformations of $L_\infty$-algebras gives explicit formal semi-universal deformations of isolated singularities.

In this paper, we define NC complex spaces as complex spaces together with a structure sheaf of associative algebras in such a way that the abelization of the structure sheaf is the sheaf of holomorphic functions. Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0606150v1

The classical HKR-theorem gives an isomorphism of the n-th Hochschild cohomology of a smooth algebra and the n-th exterior power of its module of K\"ahler differentials. Here we generalize it for simplicial, graded and anticommutative objects in ``good pairs of categories''. We apply this generalization to complex spaces and noetherian schemes and deduce two decomposition theorems for their (relative) Hochschild cohomology (special cases of those were recently shown by Buchweitz-Flenner...

We prove explit formulas for the decomposition of a differential graded Lie algebra into a minimal and a linear $L_\infty$-algebra. We define a category of metric $L_\infty$-algebras, called Palamodov $L_\infty$ algebras, where the structure maps satisfy a certain convergence condition and deduce a decomposition theorem for differential graded Lie algebras in this category. This theorem serves for instance to prove the convergence of the Kuranishi map assigned to a differential graded Lie... Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0607764v1

In this paper, deformations of $L_\infty$-algebras are defined in such a way that the bases of deformations are $L_\infty$-algebras, as well. A universal and a semiuniversal deformation is constructed for $L_\infty$-algebras, whose cotangent complex admits a splitting. The paper also contains an explicit construction of a minimal $L_\infty$-structure on the homology $H$ of a differential graded Lie algebra $L$ and of an $L_\infty$-quasi-isomorphism between $H$ and $L$.

We show that three deformation functors (deformations of the product, flat deformations and deformations of the relations) assigned to an associative algebra are naturally isomorphic. Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0509627v2
